started working on this in 2011, and it’s still evolving.

plus some doodles + my name.

(handmade cotton paper, handmade paper, embroidery, watercolor, procion dye)

if you’re interested, I finally finished my first piece of knitwear - a summer tank! I know it’s nearly August, but such is life and my schedule.

I am pretty happy about this newfound skill (that I desperately love) and I hope this is a thing I can continue + perhaps share with other people… :)

thanks to Mandy Kordal for teaching me how to machine knit (at tac of course)!

playing with a new batch of paper.

spending quality time with slides of my grandmother from when she lived (as an artist, dancer, chorus girl) in san francisco. these are from early ‘87. 

later that year I was born, and sometime in ‘88 my mother wrapped me up in her arms and we flew off to sf to live for a few years.

going through all my paper pieces I’ve accumulated over the last three years… finding sad notes, little origami, and marbled ghosts.

recycling old lives into new paper pulp with a book I found that was half destroyed from time.

the good that won’t come out - rilo kiley

you say I choose sadness
that it never once has chosen me
maybe you’re right

whoa.

get out of this world
